we spoke to the editor in chief of the ""yemen post." >> it has not been safe in the capital. this was expected. the regime warned that they could escalate. what is behind the attack is unknown. i would not be surprised if al qaeda is not linked to the attack. or that we don't see more of al qaeda's links because it seems more unorganised than an organised attack. there are casualties between injured and killed. the government is downplaying the incident, saying that they have everything under control. but how is he on the ground. it's delicate and the government is as weak as it is to me. we feel that. the government now is being seen by residents. >> joining me on the set is our correspondent who has been in the city many times. let's look at sanaa. this is the defence ministry. tell us what happened and where. >> so a car drove from this road up to this road, and then stormed a gate. it was a suicide bombing attack. this is the eastern part - eastern wing... >> this is the old part of city. >> to drive to this location you have to go through three or four military checkpoints, which shows that this is a breach. so at the time they stored this gait they were, in fact, deflecting attention from something else, which was 15 fighters coming to this location, this corner here, wearing a uniform, and then they stormed this building and there was a blast, creating damage on this building, which is a hospital. >> you know the area because you interviewed the president in one of these buildings down here. >> exactly. >> on the south side. >> because the commander of the armed forces and most of the time he came early morning, met with the minister of defence, the top hierarchy of the military established. >> they said a hospital on the grounds have been damaged. is

have the geography of it. what about the reasons behind it? >> well, there's no claim of responsibility. so far the only group in yemen to conduct these attacks is al qaeda. it has the know-how, capability. two years ago it sent 100] shoulders not far from this area. they have the intelligence. this is not only a message for the government, it's also to the west and the americans. one of the top commanders of al qaeda posted a video of about four weeks ago. that the government was held accountable for the killing of his own people. >> do you believe the government in sanaa when it says the situation is under control? >> people say that they hear gup shots in the compound. from the different sources we have been talking they say the army killed most of the fighters. there's a few pockets of resistance. i think it will be a matter of time. >> they'll sweep it up, but the underlying problems will not go away. >> it shows that the government is unable to tackle the challenge that it faces. >> that's our correspondent from al jazeera who has travelled and reported for us many times. >> there is fighting in the capital bangui, since rebels seized power the the u.n. security council is to discussion how to strengthen an international security force stationed there. let's bring in our correspondent who is live in bangui. we have heard reports of gun fire. what have you been able to see and hear? >> we are pretty safe where we are right now in the hotel, but we were all woken up with the cracks of gunfire echoing throughout the city. and that gun fire is going on sporadically at a distance from where we are. we understand from the latest, from information that we have on the ground and it's difficult to get full information, is that some people have been killed or hacked to death around the airport. we understand that several seleka fighters have died and anti-balaka fighters too. now, this attack. according to the french military has been carried out by anti-balaka. now, they are a group of mainly christian militia who were, up until now, just viewed as vij lanties, villagers, rising up against the muslim seleka forces. it seems they have the strength to carry out major offenses here in the capital bangui and this is the worst fighting that this country has seen since seleka swept through, taking control in march. >> it's a difficult situation to put in complex because it's a largely christian country. the rebel president, if you would like to call him that, the man who ousted the previous president is a muslim. this is the first time it has happened. into the mix you have extra troops coming if the security council gives the go ahead. >> unfortunately the conflict seems to be heading towards the sectarian conflict. muslims and christian have lived here peacefully for years. we have seen muslims attacking christians, then they rise up. it's believed a genocide could happen here. which is why there's a voting and a possible passing of a resolution giving french troops the right to come here, and a beefed up african force backed up by the security council. more than 1,000 french forces will be here on the ground soon, it has been announced. there no one protecting this area. heading outside the hotel, there's no one protecting civilians - women and children - at the moment. it >> all right. mentioning there the french foreign minister. that's laurent fabius. let's hear what he has to say. >> translation: this resolution is under chapter vii, which allows the use of force. the essential point concerns the use of african troops, and france is authorised to offer support and establish security and avoid the deterioration of the current humanitarian crisis. >> the u.s. national security agency is gathering billions of records from mobile phones worldwide according to leaked top secret documents given to the paper by former edward snowden. the report says 5 bill yop records every 24 hours allows u.s. intelligence officials to track the movement of people in ways that were unimaginable. using tools such as code traveller, which can map relationships geographically with people and their most. american people say it is legal. it's a breach of privacy. let's discuss it with the ceo of spark digital, a digital marketing and social media company. to know the n.s.a. is spying on people using their mobile phones, sure that is no surprise. what is interesting about that to you. >> what is interesting is what they are tracking. date, time, speed, trajectory. that's what they are keeping historical records of. what is a lot of people don't know is they are not just looking at it just at this moment, but backwards in time when the phone came online. >> code traveller, meaning they can work out which group of people from in proximity to each other. that's fascinating. they may have suspicions about you, but not know about me, but if you and i are close for a number of days or a specific journey, they can put two and two together. >> it looks interesting. there's questions of guilt by association. maybe the person is a relative. they take the same routes as they commute. those things are interesting to look at, but they may raise a lot of questions. >> the n.s.a. may look at another r revelation from edwar snowden and say, "so what?" many are aware that their digit digital footprints are being taken. >> erter than the spirns implications of this. there are some interesting possible implications for future generations. >> i want to get to that. before i do, one

not given up. at its headquarters people turn their attention to the birthday. inside protesters took time to rest before they regrouped and continued a push towards the government. >> the program, yingluck shinawatra, political leaders and other players gathered before the celebration, possibly providing an opportunity to discuss of the situation. for now, nothing has changed. the king's birthday provided thailand with a day of unity. when it begap, it handgone away. >> china has been telling the u.s. vice president that his air defense zone in the east china sea is within international law. joe biden is in budget, having talks before heading to sea. washingt washington is refusing to recognise the zone. china wants everyone to tell them flight plans when they fly through it. robert mcbride is in hong kong. >> as joe biden wrapped up a difficult and sometimes tense visit to china, it was the issue that wouldn't go away. the controversy over the air defence zone. joe biden said it was causing comprehension among joe biden's neighbours, reiterating a supposition position that they were opposed to it. he revealed in talks with yingluck shinawatra, when it came to the issue, despite the smiles and friendship that exists between the two men, he was direct in putting forward america's position. china fired back in this verbal war of words, with a comment from the foreign ministry when they said they were straight forward in outlining china's position and it was within international law for china to adopt the zone. until the end of the visit the issue dominated the proceedings. biden goes on to south korea, for talks, and the north koreans crisis being top of the agendas. when it comes to evaluating who won and who lost and who benefitted the most from negotiations in beijing. it's interesting to see how it helped to shape the continuing relationship between america and china, said to be the world's most important bilateral relationship right now. china will be looking at this as having had an important influence on how it squares up against the united states of america. by taking this unilateral position on the air defense zone it was able to assert itself in the region which irked its neighbours, presenting a strong front to america. as the world's most significant - the world's last remaining true superpower, america was unable to do anything about. >> iraqi security forces stormed a shopping mall under attack from gunman in kirkuk. the gunmen took some host int ints -- hostages. one of the attackers was caught alive. but four at least have died. >> a brazen attack in kirkuk, starting with a blast on wednesday. it killed and wounded many civilians. minutes later the sound of a raging battle, security forces caught by surprise. this was posted on the internet. they could not identify the forces engaged. many personal were killed or wounded. reports suggest that the gunmen failed in their attempt to storm the building. they managed to take hostages and took refuge in a mall. >> translation: we knew the terrorists were planning an attack. i told the security forces not to be deceived by how quiet they were. a terrorist situation like this was inevitable. we are working together to investigate the situation and have rescued 11 people. they are now with their families. heavy fighting continues into the night, turning the jawahu mall into a battle zone. a fire started, plumes of spoke billowed into the air. the gunmen are entrenched in the building for several hours before an anti-terrorism unit got in and ended the crisis. kirkuk has been hit by a string of attacks and bombings for years. there's no indication that iraqi security forces are able to restore security. >> the u.s. secretary of state john kerry is in jerusalem to propose a security plan for the west bank. me met the israeli prime minister benyamin netanyahu and will travel to ramallah to meet the prime minister. it's the first time john kerry intervened after peace talks from stalled for five years. >> european union is warning of a major threat. ministers from several countries are having talks in brussels worried about the fighters going backwards and forwards from europe to syria. the numbers of fighters from western european countries doubled in the last six months. >> in the beginning in syria you had few rebel groups. now they have come from iraq. they have, of course, got fighters coming from north africa and the european union. this creates a serious security problem because we have to anticipate their return and how to handle this. >> the commander of the free syrian army says al qaeda-linked groups are growing stronger. one affiliate has 5,000 fighters. but denied a comment that f.s.a. would be able to fight without bashar al-assad against al qaeda. >> translation: i categorically deny any of these comments. i did not give an interview. we believe that after the fall of assad, we'll have one united army. the backdon of this is the heroic fighters. they'll be the ones fighting any aggressors. >> we have the thoughts of a professor who believes free syrian army is trying to scare the west into giving support to extremist groups like al qaeda. >> there are 31 groups involved in the syrian conflict as of last year. it may have increased. al qaeda sees an opening to carry out its agenda. and so it is taking advantage of the situation in syria. one has to be careful, you know, the head of the f.s.a., general adris would send al qaeda to frighten the westerners to support him. what they really are are islamist groups, some called salafists. so there's a range in the 31 opposition groups from very liberal to extremely religious, very conservative. >> the work is going on on board a u.s. ship where dangerous syrian weapons will be destroyed. as james bays explains, the difficult part will be getting the weapons out of the country. >> the mv cape ray ship being fitted with equipment to destroy syria's arsenal. that's not the hardest part of the task. the u.n. official. he said first, the deadly stockpile must be transported in trucks through a convoy which is syria to the the port. >> we can only doctor the operation a success when the entire chemical weapons program has been destroyed outside of the country. the crunch time indeed is the reality test. we have to start moving the most dangerous chemical agents need to be transported to latakia for transportation out of country. given the fact that the con voi has to travel through parts of the syria, this is a huge challenge. >> the operation to deal with chemical weapon has gone surprisingly well. all weapons recognise transporting to a port will be difficult. there's a high chance that some rebel groups may attack the convoys. >> it's not just a difficult task, there's a tight deadline. syria's weapons must be out of the country by december 31st. less than four weeks now. >> time in the news hour to get the weather with everton. >>> thanks very much. we have high winds, high tides and coastal flooding across parts of north-west europe. the cloud around scotland has been sinking south wards. it's bringing in nasty weapons. see how tightly packed these are, this is an area of low pressure. the winds travelling from west to east. we have found all trains cancelled across scotland. we have 20,000 homes in scotland without power. the strong winds continue the next 24-48 showers. winds gusting to around 150 k/hr. added to that we have the high tides. it will have the effect of pushing the high waters to the southern parts of north sea to the next 24-48 hours. we have wed wintry weather digging further eastwards and south wards. looking at the broader picture here is the cold front. massive cloud and wintry weather and violent winds to the north-west. it will feed wet weather, wintry whether to the central areas. the strongest wind making its way towards the baltic sea. as we go into saturday, the horrible weather going further south wards and eastwards. starting to calm down towards the west by saturday. >> everton thank you. this is what is coming up on the newshour. the migrants using spain said enclave as a stepping stone. >> mexican bandits stealing a truck full of material may have been exposed to radiation. >> and suarez's 4-star performance in premier league. n nsh >>> this is the newshour with me, david foster. let me run you through the toppitop stories. >> a car bomb in sanaa. >> the u.s. security agency is gathering billions of records from mobile phones around the world. according to leaks to t"the washington post" by edward snowden. >> groups are fighting in bangui, there are reports of people being hacked to death. >> the u.n. security council is due to discuss how to strengthen international security forces stationed there. >> extra details on the crisis in the central african republic. the seleka, loosely a group of warlords, began an uprising last year, marching on bank yi. they took control of the pattern. the rebel leader michel djotobia made himself the country's interim president, the first muslim leader. it led to a decision in july to send 2,500 african forces to keep the peace. reports came in of christian groups taking up arms against the former rebels. by december, the u.n. estimated 700 had been quillkill. let's talk to someone from the school of african studies, and from the school of london. is this a sectarian/religious conflict by and large? >> you may say so by and charge. we have got the - it looks at the moment that it's more than islamist side against a non-islamist side. it doesn't make them christian. that's another matter. what seems quite clear is that it's gotten out of hand. something needs to be done as quickly as possible. that also is a reason why the u.n. resolution will take place today to garner more troops to come on the scope to solve the situation. >> in doing so, could they not strengthen the position of a man who has taken power in a coup and undermined the president who had a flee the country, president bosisa. >> yes, what puzzles everyone at the moment is that bosisa is pulling the strings from paris under the noses of france who is, at the same time, trying to getthe resolution passed and get more troops. france and the african union have to release as many troops as possible to save the current president from being overthrown, as the situation developed last night. >> why would it matter to the international community that the president who is head of the rebel group has taken the past by force. why does it matter to them. >> it doesn't matter to the international community because if the situations gets out of hand, it has regional consequences in the area. and, of course, the humanitarian side of things, which is an international concern. basically it's a matter for the african union, and for the u.n. security council, which is the international body to be able to do something about it as soon as possible. >> appreciate your thoughts on that. michael working at the school of oriental and african studies. >> soldiers from the european union are heading to the somalian capital. 4,000 troops have been put their their paces in uganda in the last three years. malcolm webb joined the class as they graduated at the training camps in the west of uganda. >> these some articlely soldiers innocently the last game of this camp in uganda. they completed training, graduate and are about to go home and fight insurgency. they queue for one of their last meals. first lieutenant hamad was born in 1991. the government was overthrown, plunging the country into turmoil. he grew up as warlords. he said he joined the government forces is fight, bringing stability. >> translation: if i did not volunteer, who would do it. i'm somali. i should fight for my government, people and family. i hope one day it can be better than it is now. >> he is one of 4,000 omarticlies trained by soldiers from the european union. trainers and soldiers alike say it hasn't been easy. now it's over. laughs and smiles. they were brought here, a hotbed for pilots. >> the european union has an interest. because it is an area that has substantial trade with europe and the stab illisation is part of thaul that process. >> at the parade ground the graduation ceremony we gins. the e.u. provided the soldiers. diplomats and generals from all those involved agreed that it's safe enough to move the program to the somali capital mogga dish u. when it started, it was very unstable. an african union force controls most of the country. the plan is one day the african union troops will leave and these men and their government will take full control. no one expects that to happen soon. in training amen did well. he was presented an award. he marches out with the other graduates. after months away they are glad to be going back to loved ones and homelands. one with a time utility use path and unknown future. >>> russian and german foreign ministers arrived in the ukrainian capital for a europe-wide meeting. ukrainian people angry that their president did not sign a trade deal with the e.u., viktor yanukovych, their" decided to remain on the side -- alined it russia. >> what was the stalemate. >> it's a stalemate. it is a question of momentum for these protesters. can they carry on bringing large numbers of people into the city center. do they have a clear idea as to what they want to do next. what will happen next. i don't think there is an answer to that question. that's why there'll be people in the ukrainian government feeling their best strategy is to wait and sit this thing out. perhaps that's why you were saying the president was on an official visit to china. i think the feeling will be it's winter, it's cold and eventually the government may hope that people will get exhausted and start to drift away from the square. this morning, yet again, it should by said they are here in significant numbers. >> with viktor yanukovych out of the country and the protesters wondering what to do, are they getting hope from the arrival of the these big wigs into the european union? would they like ties more closely with the e.u. >> they have had some. the german foreign minister arrived. they did not come as a statement. it's important to emphasise that. it's significant that the german foreign minister came here to independent square. he must have known the symbolism of what he was doing and chose to meet with the opposition leader. there are other foreign ministers. they are outspoken critics of russian policy towards ukraine. interestingly sergei lavrov, the russian foreign minister is here, they are port of the osce. the meeting has begun. it's not a meeting specifically about ukraine, but you would imagine that ukraine and the crisis here is bound it feature and there'll be different approaches round that table to what's happening here and what may happen next. >> barnaby, thank you for keeping us up to date on the situation there. thousands of people are risking their lives to make their way across the mediterranean sea to europe in the hope of a better life. hundreds have died as we reported here. more people are using a spanish enclave as a stepping stone. >> as soon as the gates open a rush of people flood back and forth between here and more o y okayo. a few metres separate the rest of africa from the gateway. more okayans coming through the border do to legally. many will do what they say. this side you are an spanish soil. it's beyond the med terrianian sea that people want to get to. >> scores of people scaled the fence in september. a man who tried not long ago died. the spanish authorities decided to reinforce part of the fence with raiser wire. those that get through do so in limbo. living in detention centres facing deportation. a family told us they travelled from the syrian city homs. this man scaled the fence hoping to find a better life. >> translation: here we have the hope of getting throe. we know every couple of weeks people get there. if we go we can work a little bit. a bit to support ourselves. >> the move to fortify milia has been criticised by some rights groups. >> we doan agree and think it's an adequate solution. it will make the situation desperate. it will not stop people coming in, they are looking for a dignified life. the geographical location makes it seem that it is a gateway. >> the european union has to get more involved. there are common policies from 28 countries. in this moment and in my opinion i think they should do more. >> for many here the long journey to reach europe will end in disappointment with a gulf between malleea and mainland spain never feeling wider. >> more and more of us worldwide, it would appear are living longer lives. it may seem like good news, but the quality of the extra years is the subject of a report. the number of dementia cases worldwide will increase or by three times. >> alzheimer's disease international says 44 million live with the disease. by 2050 it increases to 35 million cases. dr basim is a prove tore in qatar. he said there are many reasons why dementia is on the rise. >> hypertension may cause strokes that are not evident. if we can colt the -- control the hypertensions we may have cases look for nutritional courses. vitamin 12. we don't know if there's association, actually. there's other environmental causes and research going on, to look at the environmental causes that may lead into the alzheimer's disease. one thing that is important is to increase moneys and funds of studies that are looking to see what is the thing that is causing dementia so we can address and tread it. >> coming up on the newshour in sport. why mexico's first n.b.a. game in 16 years had to be postponed. stay with us if you can, here on al jazeera. >>> mexican police have found a truck of radioactive material stolen on the way to a decommissioning site. the people that opened it were exposed to lethal levels of radiation, and are in danger of dying within

the material. some residents are not convinced. >> there's danger are of radio active exposure, we don't now how far it could go. >> the cobalt was encased, but someone old it. whatever it was it was exposed. officials say it was thieves. an emergency worker said others may have been involved. >> translation: people say they found it and decided to bring it home. they were thinking of selling it as scrap metal. >> this is the gas station where the truck was stolen. the driver was sleeping when two men pulled him out of the truck, tied him up and left him in the lo. it was thought the thieves didn't know what they were stealing. this is the largest amount of radioactive material stolen in mexico. in mexico we have 2500 sources. ex-peedias, loss or threat of five to six units a year. most of them are recovered. >> this one was only recovered once out in the open. police and soldiers have been searching for the stolen vehicle across central mexico and use detectives to find it.

>> well, i think there were two things that really were foremost for the obama administration. one there is a stirmish between china and japan over islands in the east china sea. a big problem for international security. joe biden met with both the prime minister of japan and the president of china and said he made clear to china he wanted them to sort of roll back an air defense zone that china established unilaterally and is threatening japanese and even american commercial aircraft that you have to announce before you enter that space that you have to announce to china you're doing so. it's caused a lot of turmoil and headaches and so the vice president really made that clear. the other big thing in the trip was for the obama administration to make clear their so-called pivot to asia is still a viable priority for them, president obama had to cancel a trip to asia during the government shutdown so the strp was there to say we're still here and still will be strong in the region. >> i'm going to go ahead and change the topic quickly and on a personal note i wanted to ask you i heard that you got into a skirmish with reporters in japan. what happened. >> it was a little misunderstanding. i was the pool reporter meaning i was responsible to sending a report to all journalists in japan and u.s. so i was trying to see what was going on when the vice president met directly with prime minister abe in japan and was trying to get space on the riser. the japanese photographers did not like that and they took objection to that. i was trying to stand my ground there but got settled and everybody got a good shot of what was happening. >> but you're okay, right? >> of course, i'm okay. these things kind of happen when you have a lot of bodies trying to see in a small space and that's what happened. you get a quick moment to see what's happening and i wanted to make sure i was able to see and i went up on this riser this. happens occasionally elsewhere but the japanese press -- i think part of it was that the japanese press was upset when they came to the oval office they had not gotten a good space and american reporters blocked them out so a little retaliation i wasn't ready for but the international incident was worked out. >> so competitive. good. want to ask you one more question. what's going on in washington, the house and senate back in session. we just mentioned unemployment being one of the key issues to tacking before the end of the year. what else is on the docket?

the seven schools in which taylor taught. taylor really loved to read. that's kind of how she found her dream, found out what she wanted to do in life, so we felt like if we passed that on to her students, that they too might find that love for reading and want to live their dreams. and our big project we announced this year and started this year is called smile together and that's really to

that's what's going to be happening. this is going to be tapering off, much of china, korean peninsula, looking like sunny skies throughout the rest of the week. this does have the sunny weather, even warmer temperatures coming in. the downside is very calm winds puts the capping inversion overhead and while some areas of northeastern china, you're looking at some very poor air indexes in some areas, unhealthy at this time in shanghai. it's not going anywhere, it gets put up and due to the lack of winds, it's going to be staying right in place and nothing is coming through to stir up the atmosphere. towards the south, northeast monsoon into the philippines and out towards southern thailand, malaysia, northern indonesia. yesterday we had the landslide there in the northern sumatra. today we're seeing more rainfall, it's creeping farther towards the north. malaysia, past 24 hours, you saw one report here about 400 millimeters of rain. on top of that, we could be seeing an additional 200 to 300 millimeters, so flooding and mudslides still a major threat here as we have the weak tropical wave, but it's persistent, lingering in this area and still bringing some heavy rainfall. let's take a look at your temperatures here. hong kong with a high of 22. shanghai at 16, seoul at 9, and tokyo at 15. warming up and getting above average later on this week. moving over towards the americas, above average, far from actually across much of the north it's going to be getting well below average, blasts of arctic air coming in out of northern canada. already seeing heavy snowfall into the northern rockies. you could be seeing some areas up and over 60 centimeters of snow, even extending towards the west into the western portions of the great lakes, but remember that means some fairly gusty winds, so you have this big stretch of heavy snowfall, gusty winds, that's going to be creating whiteout conditions, but not just that, you're going to be looking at very dangerous wind chills. high temperatures in some areas here, especially up near southern canada, well below zero. winnipeg by friday, minus 20 here for your high. that is not your low and does not take into account the wind chill. hypothermia could set in. chicago, you don't think of a polar type of weather there for you, but minus 4 for your high, the low will be getting possibly into the teens, so bundle up and if you travel, make sure you have your cell phone charged and people know where you're going, because some of this could be treacherous traveling. as far as going towards europe, cutoff low spin there, and it's just a persistent si of it, so it's been bringing heavy rain showers and looks like we have already seen reports of flooding. high pressure is working its way in, unfortunately, see this off towards the north, that's creating foul weather towards the british isles and scandinavian peninsula. looks like it's getting worse, wednesday into thursday, scotland, fairly destructive winds in your forecast, widespread, about 2 to 4 centimeters of snowfall there, and the scandinavian peninsula is going to be the topic this week. that's your world weather. here's

>>> that week on the journal editorial report. rising enrollment numbers. is obama care on the road to recovery? we'll sort the truth from the spin. plus, new global education rankings once again show american students lagging. so just how worried should we be? and china flexes its military muscle as vice president joe biden visits the region. will the u.s. stand firm with japan as tensions rise? >>> obviously, the website when it was first launched wasn't in tip top shape to say the least. but we have been 24/7 going at it. and now for the vast majority of work users, it's working. most importantly, how people can sign up. >> welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. that was president obama pitching the revamped healthcare.gov to millennial, a group crucial to the success. touting this week's relaunch, pointing to reports of rising enrollment numbers and regrouping to sell the controversial law to a still skeptical public. so is obama care on the road to recovery? let's ask "wall street journal" editorial board member joe raggo. deputy member dan hetinger. and kim strasle. has obama care turned the corner here? >> they'd love to make you think that. what that did is they picked a -- they made a deliberate political decision to fix the part of the website that consumers see. they haven't fexed the so-called back end. this is the information systems that transmit data to insurers about who's signing up for their products. it's essentially like ordering something online and never having it go to the weather house to be delivered to you. >> the interface with the consumer is improved. the sign-up numbers -- >> but still not back -- still not totally up to speed. they're pitching this 29,000 enrollment figure for the first two days of december. is that meaningful? >> they were locking for 7 million people to sign up. even if you get 29,000 every day, you're still not going to hit that number. >> put out a little notice that what they in fact need to hit that 7 million number is 100,000 people a day. so 29,000 over two days, that's 15% of the numbers they need to be hitting. >> they needed to stop the democrats from -- capitol hill in particular from running away from the law. this seems to have worked. the spin about how this is all fixed now. you don't hear a lot of democratic criticism. >> a lot of the democrats on the hill are not really themselves up to speed on the technology that's been applied to the system. so short term for a week or so, yeah, they cab get some quiet up on capitol hill. obama's biggest problem is the young people, the so-called millennials, excuse me, are not signing up. we just had this harvard poll this week which said about 57% of them disapprove of obama care. one of the reason that the cost is very high. they didn't know the cost was going to be so high. the other reason is the website is an experience that you would expect to have had in the early 1990s. not 2013. they had something for instance called a cqueueing tool. which a little sign will say, give us your e-mail address, you can't get on, and we'll call you back. for millennials this is laughable. they just lose faith in the system. i think the process of signing people up is going to lose ground over time. >> is it that big a problem? you're a millennial. what do you think? is this something your generation looks at and says this is a bit ridiculous given where we are technologically? >> i think so. part of it is the technological problem but part of it is the product they're being required by law to buy. this is an overpriced product. it's very tightly regulated. it's not the kind of -- it doesn't adapt to changing circumstances and saying everyone should want the same thing. that's just not true. >> what about this white house much talked about white house offensive going on to sell this? not only to get mill lappials to enroll but to get the public to think better about it. they're going around, picking anecdotes, this person gets help because they couldn't get coverage before. this person had a pre-existing condition. this person is now on medicaid. it's a very concerted deliberate strategy. what's behind this? >> they're trying to make it -- suggest that it works. they now have the website somewhat in order at the front end. the problem is is they've got like ten of these examples. that has to be compared against the millions of people who are losing their coverage. and so what you see are -- they're rolling out all the democrats to go and do this. lots of people are. rather than running, they're now forcefully coming out. you're seeing people coming out like mary landrieu, who is up in a tough re-election this next year, and after a month of saying, well, we need to fix this, now she's out saying, i would vote for this law again. so they're going to try to make this an asset. >> what are the markers we should be looking for here in the coming weeks to come, whether or not this thing is actually gaining more momentum and is working like the white house says? >> one thing is that they've refused to say how severe the back end problems are. they said they've fixed the problems but they won't say how much -- how many problems there were to begin with. >> so it's still a black box. >> right. you can't just trust anything that comes out of the health and human services administration. so once they start revealing more information, we're seeing this week where there's a surge of enrollment. when they start to be more transparent, that will be a sign things are better. i don't think that's going to happen. >> is the white house going to tough this out, march on, declir victory no matter what happened and just make sure that they can -- this will improve as it goes on? >> absolutely. i think that is indeed the plan to cram this down, push it through one way or another. until you get enough people on the subsidies, that will make it difficult to get them off. the problem with the strategy is a lot of people like the millennials or people losing their insurance are finding out that essentially obama care is a welfare program. and that they're going to pay higher costs, higher premiums, so that other people over here the ininsured and people with pre-existing conditions can be subsidized. that wasn't the way obama care was represented when it was sold to congress. i think that is going to create a political problem out in the country for them. >> all right, dan, thanks. when we come back, renewed hand ringing over the state of american education as new international rankings find u.s. students once again lagging in math, science and reading. how concerned should we be? there's a debate ahead. life with crohn's disease or ulcative colitis is a daily game of "what if's". what if my abdominal pain and cramps come back? what if the plane gets delayed? what if i can't hide my symptoms?

>> i think we should take it seriously. i mean, some people will say, look, we're in the middle, we didn't fall very far, we've just sort of been there, things aren't getting worse. on the other hand, the world is changing. the skills you're node to survive in the world and compete in the world and also we're now in a global economy competing for skills. that we need to be making progress on the start rather than going behind. i think what also has people nervous is that this comes despite many years now of the united states being focused on this question no child left behind, other pieces of legislation. common core debate. state efforts to improve things. and we're not making progress. >> no noticeable improvement. >> rankings in education seem to have very little to do with the success of individuals in later life. much less the success of the economy. there's this false equation that countries with great educational systems are going to have innovative dynamic economies. is that true of japan? of course it's not. is that true of finland? it's not there either. their one champion corporation is nokia. it's good half as many people as belgium. that's what makes a lot of these comparisons ridiculous. >> we should ignore them? >> yes, because they basically tell you nothing except to invest a lot of money in education and that's what we do here in the united states, putting more and more money into schools, with, really, very little to show for it. >> no, that's the opposite, in fact, because what's happened, what this shows is you put a lot of money into education, that's not working. >> we're doing great in spending money. we're right up at the top. >> so clearly something else has to be done. because that's not doing it for us. >> education is a value in and of itself. there's a lot to be said for having smarter 15-year-olds or 18-year-olds. but that debate shouldn't be had on, you know -- by saying this is what's going to predict our success or failures as a country going into the -- >> all right, you're right, it's not the only variable. there'se dynamic policy. what are your policies. all those things. there's a competition in the world now for human capital, right? you want to get the best and the brightest. one of the problems with japan is it doesn't take immigrants. they don't attract the world's smartest individuals. like we still do. you agree with brett? >> i really don't. let me give you two examples. it's not really my example. it's their example. lichtenstein. their administrator said, look, we are fly specks in the world economy. we understand that we have to be better than most if we're going to compete. so what both of those countries have done is make a concerted effort to emphasize mathematics instruction. they take upwards of eight hours of math a week. and they have innovative programs to teach. they understand their kids are going to have to know this stuff. they drill them. they discipline them. and they succeed. it's not rocket science. i think if our schools understood that they were in the same competitive pool, that we would try to do the same sort of innovati innovation. inwou i would say one more thing, if the teachers unions allow that innovation. >> it does at least wake up america. it says, you know what, your success in the world economy is not guaranteed. >> yes, but lichtenstein and switzerland's success in the world has to do with banking and low taxes. >> all right, let's not change the subject. let's go on to whether or not education is something we ought to care abbut as a competitive -- something to help our competitor. >> there are other things we ought to care about more. we should have an environment that encourages immigrants to come to this country. to innovate. to succeed and to have second chances in life in case they fail the first time. that's more important to make sure they're at the same level. >> but that suggestion we just don't care about this issue, we should be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. and also want an education system that improves. the thing is, we know what you need to do to make it better. it's not spending $115,000 per head. it's having some school choice. having merit-based pay for teachers. and in general giving our kids a better environment especially in k through 12 where their instructors are inspiring them and learn these things. >> that's all true. but this isn't the key to national success. >> okay, brett, thank you. when we come back, joe briden wraps up his asian trip among rising tensions over china's renewed military aggression towards japan. will the u.s. stand behind its ally? today her doctor has her on a bayer aspirin regimen to help reduce the risk of another one. if you've had a heart attack, be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. if you've had a heart attack, be sure to talk to your doctor ick with innovation. stick with power. stick with technology. get the new flexcare platinum from philips sonicare and save now. philips sonicare. >>> the united states are deeply concerned for the attempt to change the status quo in the east chinese sea. this action has raised regional tensions and encreased the risks of accidents and m miscalculations. >> biden tuesday voicing concern over china's aggressive new air defense identification zone in the east chinese sea. this included more than five hours of face-to-face meetings with chinese president xi jinping who showed no sign of backing down from his exercise to gain control over japan's senkaku islands. let's give viewers a sense of why americans should care about this dispute over some islands in the east china sea. >> i think they should care because it looks as though that area is becoming destabilized. you have china, its tension with japan, with countries in the south china sea, indonesia, the philippines. they are using their muscle to try to push their rule over those waters. these countries are going to push back. you've got a very tense situation down there. historically in the entire post war period the united states has, shall we say, had the back of countries like japan and south korea. and at this moment, they literally are explicitly doubting that. that's why vice president biden has to go out there, to reassure them. i have no recollection of a u.s. administration in the post war period having to go out on a trip like mr. bidens and reassure our allies we were behind them. >> we also have a treaty obligation to defend japan if it is attacked. >> including these little islands. >> inclouding the little islands, right. did joe biden succeed? >> i think he raised some doubts, deep doubts, in the minds of japan's foreign ministry and leaders. >> even talking to your sources? >> yeah. there's real nervousness. basically, they're as nervous as, say, the saudis and israellies are when it companies to iran. there's a sense this is an administration that wants to put america in retreat. the administration's been talking about channels of communication with the chinese when what they should be saying is we will not recognize this air defense identification zone and we'll take steps to prevent the chinese from enforcing it. >> they sent b-52s through that zone without inrm toiininformin chinese in advance. what is it that they are doing that is inadequate in your view of sending that message? >> they're very sort of precise, diplomatic terms of art and rhetoric that the administration ought to be using. one other thing they ought to be saying is we recognize the senkaku islands as sovereign japanese territory. we are treaty bound with japan. from 1960 to defend those islands. we will take steps, for inens s instance, having joint patrols around the senkaku islands to make it clear to the chinese how we view this matter. to tell the chinese at this early stage to back off before there is some accident or miscalculation on their part. >> dan, china is a rising power. and history shows that when you have a rising power, especially an authoritarian power, that is beginning to push its boundaries and assert itself, there's no question in my mind that china wants to dominate the pacific and push the americans out. you really do have a situation where you can get military conflict if either -- for example, that rising power doesn't understand the limits, doesn't understand how the world will push back. you think the united states is giving that adequate signal to the chinese? >> absolutely not, paul. we just showed vice president we simply have let them slide in that region. >> we have to take one more break. when we come back, hits and misses of the week.

thank you. , good luck. ♪ ♪ ♪ lou: president obama is enrollment numbers, it is all bad news for the obama administration. am lou dobbs. hello, everyone. severely undercutting president obama's credibility an approval rating. a new fox poll shows half of voters believe president obama knowingly lied when he repeatedly told americans that they could keep their plan under his signature health care law. as for the number of americans who have signed on for health care insurance, the initial numbers are woefully short and far below their lowered expectations. 106,000 have eolled in health care plans in the state and federal exchanges through the first month obamacare. one fifth of what the officials had projected before the launch of health care dog of and the opening of exchanges accnted for only 27,000 of successful in moments, 80,000 of them originated in state-run insurance exchanges and secretary kathleen sibelius revealed below numbers and then open herself and the administration up to ridicule consistent with what maschuses, a state of only 6.5 million residents, experienced an initial rollout of romney care. not revealing the number of people that paid for the plan and she did not explain why the obama administration will withhold those numbers from the public until december 15. >> the numbers are consistent with the numbers that massachusetts reported and that we feel are the most accurate by the 15th of december and we will be able to tell you how many people have paid for this coverage. lou: or disturbing numbers. 55% say they believe the obama administration tried to deceive them about obamacare. compared to only 30% many say we need to throw obamacare out and begin again and 42% say keep trying to fix it and 10% say leave it alone. well, let's find out our guests tonight have to say. joining us is andrea and greg. cost of the five and thank you both for bei here. i would like to turn to you, andrea. she has become a metaphor for what is going on with health care dog of an obamacare itself. it's striking that thishing just doesn't work and we still are having conflicting claims is whether or not it can be fixed as the administration promises. >> that's right, she is and who she said she was. and now she's getting bullied, much like people are getting bullied to sign up for the plans so they cannot log on and get these numbers today. but the numbers are -- it's so fraudulent of their time to do. they are changing the jobs number equation for the presidential election and now they are changing the definition of how people hav signed up for this. so they are counted as being part of obamacare. but you know and i know and greg know that you can't really count someone until they actually pay for the plan. so this is fuzzy math to say the least. lou: absolutely. what he is doing is appalling. they only have 27,000 sign-ups and enrollees over health care dog of in the 36 states that our federal are federal exchanges. the rest come from state exchanges and this is getting, laborious and absurd. >> everyday gets worse and you wonder where it will bottom out for this administration. i would say that the metaphor in this town for obamacare is a senator named kay hagan. a moderate democrat from north carolina. she was easily leading in her reelection fight for next year. up by 10 or 12 or 15 points and now tied in north carolina and people tell polltakers a reason why is obamacare. there are so many democrats who are now running scared for 2014. lou: 16 senators, saying they quote unquote dressed him down. then the democratic caucus today let the white house know that either there is what they consider to be riable by friday, or there is going to be -- it looks like there will be at least a threat and they will be joining up with fred upton on his legislation to make sure that people are able to keep their health insurance. >> it's all a farce. how are they able to keep their plans? is as liable gloves were a democratic lawmaker to explain it to me. this is a fake and phony strategy like if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. the old plans do not exist anymore and to say that people can keep their plans means that the plans are against the law. a lot of the democrats wrote. so i'm just wondering how they are actually going to somehow reconcile this. insurance companies are not going to extend these plans forever. maybe a couple months. "the wall street journal" weighed in upon now. you and i know insurance coanies these plans on yours, so it just doesn't make any sense. lou: raising the issue quickly, and if you would would address this. no one's talking about these insurance companies come and health care providers who are in the league with this administration and whose future profit models are at risk along with obamacare itself. this is on uncomfortable, if you will, an uncomfortable alliance. >> it could be interestingfor investors at the white house caves in and does the inevitable, and that is greatly delaying the sign-up period, the penalties, maybe tries to come up with some scheme that people can do. is this starts to unravel, and one of the few losers will be the insurance companies. >> i think president obama will subsidize the insurance companies and i think yo hit the nail on the head where the shareholders are and i would be demanding answers from the management about what the financial implications are and they thought they were going to get these new enrollees an i promise you that the president well, that's the next move, use our money to subsidize the insurance company. lou: i'm sure folks wonder why this is the only bobcats raising this issue. andrea, thank you for being here. thank you very much. up next, the new book end of days takes a look at the kennedy assassination through the eyes of lee harvey oswald and his wife and the events that led to these actions and the questions that linger a half-century later. we will be talking with james a business owner, i'm constantly putting out fires. so i deserve a small business credit card with amazing rewards. with the spark cascard from capital one, i get 2% cash back on ery purchase, every day. i break my back around here. finally soone's recognizing me with unlimited rewards! meetings start at 11, cindy.

>> there's no doubt that the military medical system is the best in the world. you are far better being wounded in afghanistan than having a crash on the interstate because these guys know how to deal with it. the trauma care is the best in the world. the problem is the transition from the military system to the va and what happens there, quite frankly it is unconscionable. you have a 20 month average time between the day they start filing the paperwork and they accept them into the system. i have been with guys in this book and these guys said, no, this is what happened. showing people what it was really like and it's very graphic immediate battlefield care, and now and rehab. processing it into the real world. what is happening is two things. the va system is broken. nothing is too good for our troops, and that's what we're going to give him it seems like, nothing. these kids deserve a good job. it is the brightest military the wod has ever seen. lou: you talk about posttraumatic stress disorder in the book. we've got so many guys out there that are suffering from not an i think about this. when you were in vietnam versus so many of them over so many years in afghanian and iraq and i just -- contrast, if you will, contrast the pressure on the battlefield, knowing you're going out on one mission, the guys we have been sending over to afghanistan and iraq day after day after day of intense combat. >> world war ii. my dad was already overseas and my mom and dad met in 1940. he left in early 1943 and dn't come home until 1945. the total time in combat was less than six months, even though they were gone for two years. vietnam, average time, 15 men's. today, and i'm a marine talking about this, the united states army, one of the best that it's been, 315 month tours for your average 60 month enlistee. >> you're going to need some of these terrific volunteers and those who have served the nation so gallantly and have sacrificed ever so much, as you have pointed out, for all of us. sir, thankkyou. the book is american heroes on the homefront online at bookstores everywhere and as i said, this is my book, he wrote it, but it is my book. lou: and president obama swapping out for hillary clinton?

italy. >> sand it too much, too young for toddlers with tech? >> we begin in ukraine where opposition protests are escalating and the deposit is feeling the pressure. demonstrators are blockaded buildings. victor vanukovich is calling for calm. bus his statements are falling on deaf ears. the latest demonstrations have been going on for more than a week. protestors are angry that the president rejected a new trade deal with europe after pressure from his allies in moscow. for more on this developing story, let's cross over to lauren taylor. in london. lauren. >> this is the scene right now in independence square. key government buildings prevent occupations from the protestors. let's cross to barnaby phillips who is live in kiev. barnaby. >> i'm also in independence square. these crowds here in defiance of a government order. they've been here all day listening to speeches, listening to music. chanting slogans. the atmosphere is very festive. it has to be said. let's look back on the day's events right in the center of the ukrainian capital. in the city center it does feel like a revolution is underway. the city hall has become a headquarters for protestors. all day people came in, just have a liquor enjoy the food and hot drinks, or -- look, or enjoy the food and hot drinks. the carpet won't get damaged in these extraordinary times. the problem for the opposition is where do they go from here? how do they turn occupation into political victory? >> translator: the way to resolve this crisis is through early presidential and parliamentary elections. we want a new confidence resolution in the government of ukraine. this government should resign. >> pictures have emerged from sunday night that show that police were at times brutal in their treatment of protestors and journalists. anton was among dozens who were beaten by police. this is all that's left of his camera. officials say 35 were hurt by police, some in hospital. grim routine of life and a cold winter, this is where we met tatiana, selling cabbage and very much in favor of political change. >> now it's time to wake up. i'm grateful to the protestors. i want my children and grandchildren to have better lives. >> back in independence square, people are prepared for another long night. in speech after speech, they say ukraine is part of europe. >> there is no sign that protestors are prepared to leave independence square. so the government has to make a decision. whether to stay away, in the hope that things just eventually fizzle out, or to send police into the square and remove these protestors by force. the crowds have blocked roads, they put guards on the barricades. they control the center of kiev. but to overthrow the government l they'll have to convince the rest of the country to follow them. >> and barnaby, russian president putin has been talking about this. he is obviously a key to the ucrane. >> that's right. it's a difficult time for him. he's been watching things that happened here in kiev very, very closely. he said it wasn't a legitimate revolution if you like. that has to be the way that he would look at events here. the idea that this is some sort of popular uprising is very difficult for him to countenance. perhaps just a week or so ago, he would have felt he had ukraine very much back into his sphere of influence that he had wrestled it if you like from the jaws of the european union. now it's not look so clear. and remember for vladimir putin ukraine ask a very, very important country. much more important than muldova, armenia, georgia. it's a bigger place, certainly the eastern part of a ukraine the cultural ties are much more important. he just like president in kiev will be watching the events with concern and i think really wondering what will be the best move that they should make. interestingly, president yanakovich himself says he will be visiting on a trip to china. on his way back he's meant to pass through, and will talk face to face evidently with president putin. it's hard to know where we will be in three or four days' time when this meeting will take place. >> thank you,

seems some people on the streets are wilings to go to -- willing to go to extremes to achieve their goal. days after meeting with the protest leader the prime minister said she is willing to do anything to end the crisis. unelected people's council running the country is unconstitutional. >> last night after we met him we found out he wasn't interested in the resignation of the prime minister nor does he want to dofl the parliament. he wants to return the are state to the people. this provision doesn't exist under constitutional law. that's why it doesn't mean that we say no but this negotiation we don't know how to make it happen. >> in the meantime the immediate aims of those fieding here are far more clear and more specific. >> this is not a crowd dispersal operation. it is a case of the protestors using whatever and doing whatever they can to push inside that area and the police are holding their line. also tear gas, rubber bullet and water cannon laced are, fans to blow away the tear gas, plastic bags so they don't breathe it in. no signs of giving up but the assault is seeming to make no headway. wayne hay, al jazeera bangkok. >>> on other news, priem mints

aggravated by the civil war in syria. will the army be able to bring back security? >> well, it will be very difficult. but this is uncharted waters for the lebanese government. there's been it would appear no decision like this since the end of the lebanese civil war. as you rightly point out, the tension has been in this city for many, many years. but what mccarthy has been saying is that he will now ask the army to take control of the city. he says that he wants the supervision of the city, to be under the army for the first time. now, some reports suggest that the whole city could become a military zone. he denies this. he says it's not going to go that far. but undoubtedly after all the violence we've seen in the past few days, over the weekend, with at least ten dead, one, 11th unconfirmed death, at least 50 people injured amongst the casualties, this has shown to lebanese politicians a very divided government, that something has to be done. the test is beginning, there's been a suggestion that 48 hours will be given to the army, to take control. we've already seen a lot of activity all through the streets of the city of a lot of movements of military personnel. the sniping has been carrying on. not only that, there's been mortar shells landing, also rpg rounds fired off. so many people terrorized and injured in this conflict which is effectively a

due to hold elections in 2016 but that date could not be upheld. could lead to instability. >> some weeks the president asked the prime minister to step aside. largely in response to a crisis of confidence across somalia. a lot of somalis have become the energiesingly if unsatisfied with the prime minister, a lot of people are becoming increasingly critical. we have heard rumors of internal struggles. the president thought he needed to reshuffle, had no powers to dismiss the prime minister, the only way he could get rid of him was through a vote of no confidence. what happens from now is, the president has a period of 30 days to come up with a new prime minister and that prime minister has a further 30 days to nominate a cabinet. it is a theory this process could carry on for another two months before we get anything like a stable government. the theory is whenever you get this kind of competition for jobs in somalia there is often a period of security problems as well, because the various clans use security problems to provoke their positions. so it looks like we're going to face a series of political unrest and that could create some serious problems for security.

nearly a no fly zone nor territorial air space. so can joe biden discover the real reasons behind china's power play? only a gambling man would lay money on what china is thinking and nobody is taking bets. stephanie scowan, al jazeera, yokosuka. >> david cameron wants to improve ties between europe and the world's second largest economy. cameron is meeting with senior leaders. >>> some in europe and elsewhere see the world changing, and want to shut china off behind a bamboo curtain of trade barriers. brifn-- britney wants to tear te barriers down -- britain wants to tear those barriers down.

tar, landmark -- qatar. more daims about his country's nuclear past. >> iran will continue its nuclear enrichment at 5% and iran will continue construction work at iraq. iran has agreed not to use certain activities that fall within the scope of this timetable and this plan of action. we have also agreed to provide specific arrangements with the iaea for them to continue, in fact in most cases continue monitoring our activities because they have been at our -- they have been everywhere. >> many people are wondering what is it which prompted iran suddenly to go for this deal? because under former president najad it was a totally different rhetoric, we're not going to go for a deal with the west. suddenly, there was this break through. is it because the sanctions were biting deeply into the economy or, from a political perspective, the architects of iran's diplomacy said you know what we have been undermind for a long time and it's tithe time to show that we are genuine in starting a new chapter? >> in the time, now iran has 19,000 centrifuges. the net product of sanction he has been about 18,800 centrifuges that has been added to iran's stock of centrifuges. so sanctions have it errly failed in that regard. >> mr. prime minister, the sanctions have been no more evident than it is now, particularly in syria, strained relations between you and let's be very specific in the saudis, the qataris, the emirates and the turks. is there any way this can be bridged? >> trying to invite insiders to intervene mill tailor in syria will not result a problem. in fact, there is no military solution to the tragedy in syria. we need to bring all the parties together. what we can do: the future of syria can only be decided by the yrnsyrians and the syrians alon. >> the reason i ask this question, i've been traveling in this part of the world, predominantly a sunni part of the world. iran is trying to promote shiite islam. there's a deep mistrust about rawp. are you on a mission to regroup the hearts and minds for this part of the world? >> to in fact contain the spread of sectarian violence in the world because we believe sectarianism is dangerous. iran is certainly not interested in promoting that. we have in fact talked to everybody from the very first days of assuming office i visited iraq. and the core of my discussion with all iraqis, both shiites and me, kurd and arab was the need to curb the sectarian divide. >> you can watch the entire, on talk to al jazeera, right here on al jazeera. >>> all right, on the news hour. special delivery. the world's biggest online retailer has unveiled its new business plan and it could put your local postman out of a job. plus. >> i'm rob reynolds in bangladesh. with a report on the tannery industry in this

hour in al jazeera. a recap. demanding that the president resign. >>> lebanese government has sent in the army to take control of the northern city of tripoli. prime minister says they will remain there for the next six months. and thailand's prime minister has defended her government amid growing opposition on the street. hospital officials say two protestors were shot and wounded during latest confrontation with police. >>> now it's a multibillion industry that's never out of fashion. but it does have a dark side, tannery officials earn little more than $2 a day. as part of our two part investigation into the industry, rob reynolds went to meet some of the workers in a slum in dacca. >> of the dirty jobs bangladesh is t to survive, these tannery workers are day in and day out amid the rotting corpses of animals. mohamed says he's 14 but looks older. >> there are scars on my hands and legs. these injuries are never ending. >> he earns about $2 a day. the water they're wading in, without protective clothin clots laced with arsenic and chromium sulphate. these chemicals make the leather soft and supple but cause festering sources and fatal cancers. >> lung cancer, cancer of the nose, and also urinary bladder cancer. >> there are more than 200 tanneries in this part of dacca, leather sales were worth nearly $1 billion last year. >> this is a product that is used word wild for luxury goods. but for these workers who are making them, they are looking after our health and safety. >> a survey dong by a bangladesh environmental group find that 75% of the workers die by the age of 50. >>> moving the tanneries out of the densely populated slum, but so far all the promises have gone unfulfilled. intergovernment officials did not are answer al jazeera's repeated

in human misery. in a far off place. rob reynolds, al jazeera, dacca. >> in bangladesh it's worth more than $1 a year. the leather they produce is exported to top fashion houses in dozens of countries around the world. richard peerhouse is a research worker, improving these conditions won't be easy. >> there's no simple solution, the problem is one that's been around for decades. so it's going to take a number of different steps. the first step however is the enforcement of fist against the tanneries, at the moment there's simply no government enforcement of either environmental laws or labor laws, what that means is there's no pressure on them orelocate out of the residential area. there is a cluster of heavily polluting industry in one of the most densely populated areas of dacca. at the moment there's a problem of how leather is labeled, a leather product that is labeled made in country x for instance that is where the leather product is manufactured, where it's sliced up and stitched together. that label doesn't tell you where the really dirty and dangerous part of the process which is the tanning process, where that's taken place. so until that labeling change takes place it's difficult for the consumer to make the decision where the goods are actually from. >> it's not just people suffering in pursuit of fine leather. the second part of the series airs on al jazeera on tuesday. >>> we'll show you the devastating impact bangladesh's tanning industry has done on the government and the people who live here. >> and we'll have much more on the toxic tannery

the ship. the coast guard, italian frigate and other ships taken watch by then but italy had promised to increase patrols in the region, after hubs of boats capsized, boats carrying migrants sank less than two weeks apart. the refugees will be taken to an overcrowded center. while figuring out what to do with the rest. >> chinese garment factory blaze, broke out in a loft. tuscany's government says unemployment is rife in the area. >>> be a helicopter which crashed into an overcrowded pub in glasgow, scotland, still more bodies buried inside the building. >>> children may be one more step ahead of their parents, when it comes to electronic gadgets, but what about handwriting and spelling? a new poll shows only a quarter of the people believes its necessary. >> it's craft time, learning how to cut and paste on computers. with technology being in the central part of everyday life, they also need to figure out how to point ant click. this care facility in west london has a special technology course for the children each week. they learn on computers like this. by the time they reach school age they know how to navigate the computer keyboard and the mouse. but it's making difficult for children to learn a simple task of 11ing a pen and pencil, or persevere at new things. own 53% of boys aged five are able to write simple stores or list at the expected level. in girls that number is 69%. the manager here says getting the balance right is essential. >> whether we provide scissors, pencils, felt tip or even brushes to do their painting we are teaching no skills. we are developing them grasping to palm ar grip or prepencil. i would say it's the balance of both. we've got to give children the exposure because technology is going to be their future as well. >> under a new early learning curriculum in the u.k, children are expected to use the range of technology used at home and in school. they are also expected to select and using different technology for specific purposes. some educators warn that nurseries are falling into the trap of displacing traditional learning and play activities with high tech alternatives. the challenge for daycare centers are trying to combine both, making children as comfortable with a mouse as they are with a pencil. >> would you be able to recognize the names and faces of 180 strangers, in 15 minutes? if the answer

cards. recall more than 300 random spoken numbers. and remember a sequence of binary numbers more than 4,000 digits long. it seems unbelievable until you see them do it. >> it's boring sitting and looking at numbers but the truth is that during the memorization time, we create a lot of pictures, sounds in our minds, our mind because our memory is really colorful and is really, really something occupying yeah. >> during ten separate trials of recall there is the world reig reigning champion and a smattering of other champions. the philippines is well represented despite last month's devastating typhoon. what's remarkable is not only the feats of concentration, but the spread of the sport in recent years. more than 30 countries are represented at this world championships,

there's really only one thing to remember. practice, practice, practice, paul brennan, al jazeera. >> extraordinary now, back to folly in doha. >> thank you very much. one of the multimillion dollar scandal that has cost more than a third of the budget. protest against government mismanagement. reporting from the capital of malawi. >> millions of u.s. dollars are missing from the country's budget many given to the government by international aid donors. many from now who have stopped giving money to the country. >> the donors have suspended in supporting the budget of malawi. knowing that the money has been rotating so that one will cause most suffering upon malawians, there may be no fuel in the filling stations, the fourx to buy most of the commodities will not be there. >> the local currency continues to lose its value. interest rates are going up, so it is more common to exchange the currency on the black market. malawi is one of the poorist countries in the world. angry about the corruption scandal. >> since of that, we are failing to see everything change. we still want poor and we are going down. we deeply, we going deeply down. >> activists say they are planning peaceful protests. these have been given out to people. they are being asked to wear black every monday in protest of government corruption. organizers are calling it black monday and planning the first protest on the 9th of december. some senior members of government have been fired and arrested. she has promised to do everything she can to end crumtion. yet -- corruption. yet demonstrators wonder how millions of dollars have been lost during her government. >> do stay back with us, after the break. >> and now, a techknow minute... >> welcome back. the world's biggest online retailer is considering using drones to deliver small packages to its customers. amazon says the special robot planes will significantly cut down its shipping times but not everyone is convinced that the plan will take flight. al jazeera's david tan hais the story. >> when was the first time that you shopped online? now imagine if your purchases could be delivered in the time of a pizza, within a 16 kilometer are region of its distribution center, you can get it in the same day, using an unmanned drone. the country has released this video on its website, showing how the mechanical device would work, the octo-copter looks like a giant insect. it would transparent items from the white house to your home. now amazon says drones will be environmentally friend reply. working on electric motors, it cuts out the need for large delivery vehicles. but the company hasn't explained how the drones fly through, say, bad weather or power lines. in rural areas it could encounter tall trees while in cities, high rises. there's also the issue of regulation. right now many nations do not allow unmanned drones for civilian purposes. the united states is expected to approve them by 2015. and the eu should follow by 2016. in the meantime, amazon says it will take four or five years before its delivery drone gets off the ground. >> well, mary scavel is a former inspector for the u.s. department of transportation. she says amazon's drone plan may be nothing more than pie in the sky. >> well, the biggest concern is the conflict it poses for all the other aviation in the u.s. air space. passenger planes and commercial aircraft. but what people don't see on the radar screen because they are practically invisible is all the general aviation in the united states. you put that traffic out there legally flown by a pilot and add tens of thousands of drones and you have a rep me for disaster. without a doubt, mid air collisions or near mid air collisions. do operators who operate drones really need a pilot's license? a lot of people say yes, because you need to know the rules of the air. how do you enter and leave, how do you announce you're in the traffic patterns, others say no, it's ridiculous, too expensive. so the federal aviation administration has just started on the process, a five year plan. the fact that amazon has bought a few drones and said they are delivering parcels, there is a long way between those wishes and actually delivering them. you do not want drones filing a few -- flying a few feet over people's heads, televisions are heavy, and you don't want those for saifl reasons. same reason they have problems, whenever we put requirements on general or private aviation for safety reasons, the lobbyists go crazy. they don't want something that's going to cost them extra money even if it's for safety. >>> time for sports. >> unbeaten run in the spanish premier division, leon messi, who is side lined, after a second half strike from the level on points with madrid at the top of the table. it comes off they were beaten last week but says there's no need to panic just yet. >> translator: when there's a defeat there's a tendency to look on the dark side. that's normal and we're aware of that but in my opinion both in victory and defeat the most important thing is to keep calm and balanced and look at things in a positive way. it's clear when you lose a match you realize there are things that need improvement but not everything is bad. we will lose other matches for sure but we don't have to lose morale, for sure. >> madrid scheduled to host the first game of the tournament, the damage appears to be limited to the outside concourse and of the stands which would have taken a lot longer to repair. the stadium is due to the completed in early february. >>> over in argentina, kept open the hopes, despite a man down, they took a two-down, goal it allowed oscar benitez to take advantage. lanage lost another player but the 2-2 keeps them in the running for the trophy. >>> there were parts of manchester united's best players, reunited, celebrating united's academy class of 'fee 72. >> it was a night of pomp and circumstance as six of manchester united reunited for the documentary, class of '92. the film released in the u.k. celebrates one of the best youth teams, top lined by some of the u.k.'s greatest footballers. ♪ >> former england international's david beckham and welsh international, were reunited. >> took time for us to be together and you know at the same time, that probably helped us. because we were all mates off the bench. and different pressurize at that time, we could help each other out. but you know, always a special time. we proved more or less at the same time, and staying on the team for so long. and we're all monday nights which makes it even better. >> the six would help united's first team win the 1999 uefa championship. the five played together, however gighowever gigs playingd home team wouldn't have such luck. because of their friendships. >> you know, we are all from differently backgrounds, i'm from london, they're all from manchester. so you know it was just the way we came together, how successful we were, how bonded we were, and how we got the eye on each other, special time, best in our careers, i think. >> and the fun would continue on and off the field. >> we got together, just fun, now 20 years later each man is enjoy his own success. beckham trying to launch his m ls franchise, gary for england, and now gigs has no time to retire any time soon. zimir karim, al jazeera. >> scored an impressive charity match, the form he manchester united, midfielder, out of breath too. nba champs miami heat, closely edged out the charlotte bob catsdbobcats,99-98. oklahoma

that now that said there are several fresh winds out of the text media protest leaders had testified at the moment one that includes trees and which is punishable by death or life imprisonment. so at this point in time of the options as its head seemed to be very limited. the officials from wto countries gathered in bali indonesia to start a new round of tom's tuesday. this may be the last chance for vt debbie teal trade deal has taken twelve hits. the one hundred and fifty nine to the teal numbers are close to a slimmed down deal but critics say it says there is no finished document for the bali summit to sign that you see an agreement at the four day conference would be unprecedented. since it usually happens that debbie teal ministerial summits the number of tweets and oman time that no trade deals are being worked on increasingly there is doubt about the relevance of the world trade organization under new global economic conditions. and really it out this one. any sufficiently put it in bali victory team so that the pto was one hundred and fifty nine members are working to break the play in cost and finalize a packet of global trade agreements. it's a meeting there will decide the very fate of the world trade organization. a hundred and fifty nine ministers have gathered here in bali for the nine national conference of the wto which i will try to revive the twelve year long strike made to negotiations from and all around. they will be working towards what they've been dumping the body package. it is basically a set of policies. and that they have deemed to be most agreeable by all the nations. taken from tax grab from the vast untill around here. i've just sort of the negotiations can move forward. it is divided into the broad cup victories the first is the agreement on least developed countries this is a negotiation to facilitate the integration of least developed countries into the world economy. this has been mostly agreed upon the second is on trade facilitation is a deal to have the potential to whether trillion us dollars to the global economy is on its final stages. but the sticking point is to agricultural subsidy debate what they are still huge divide between developed countries that wants to lessen subsidies to create a free market. against the developing nations that doesn't want this because it will hugely in fact the food security for their people and the agricultu industry this is the sticking point in distracting to do ill the whole negotiation here in bali where the wto is in and do or die a meeting. the show david is still rather thin and it can make progress andy's pushups acidity body meanwhile us secretary of state did john kerry has left america on a tight four day schedule to visit multiple countries in europe and the middle east. kerry is expected of me did to indian foreign minister me at pudgy kid gets in brussels on his first top and click and a nato foreign ministers meeting. he is awful together to visit the capital of mcgill back to discuss the eastern european countries path towards european integration. and with a mission to push forward the middle east peace negotiations caleb and if it separately israeli prime minister and demeaning fiasco in the west bank and palestinian president mahmoud abbas in . and so the malay since un secretary ted is strictly can out talk with wanting to get bites and he's joining us from brussels while jack and the need to meeting that john terry will be attending will be at focusing heavily on afghanistan. now we know that nato troops are going to pull out from the country by the end of next year so that is killing it away. what a sense of urgency around this gathering. let's try the sense of urgency and the reason that joan kerry is he is because of. peace agreement that was dropped to do with afghanistan. over a long period which was agreed to by both sides which posture the afghan national assembly overwhelmingly supported by the afghan national assembly. i'm in the las minute was jettisoned by afghan president karzai he said he'd leave it to whoever came into office often enough that next year's elections in april. really up setting the apple cart because the entire first millet re process in afghanistan resides at home. this agreement being put into place at the moment as you mentioned of all major u s forces. involving combat operations even if it's not in direct combat. perhaps giving things like this support afghan forces that will wrap up by this time next year that i want to leave a strong presence in its place a training mission of assistance mission he could come with about eight billion us dollars but it needs to have this agreement in place only this what they really trying to nail through this meeting but it is breaking but brings mentioned clearly present cause by the afghan president he's thinking of his legacy he wants to be seen as a strong leader who was not a use trying to send a message. but nato in the us looking at the security system. there's security setup on the ground in afghanistan and they see as still being full of vulnerabilities and weaknesses. they believe his presence needs to remain in place to trying other saying is not going to happen unless that peace agreement is in place and jacket i care a split is going to last about forty days or so apart from afghanistan will this meeting focused on any other big issue. yes it will carry will be here and is also going to be a sort of a mini summit with russia said i lavrov russia's foreign minister is here. there are also going to be talking about other issues like syria also unlike the contentious missile defense system he in europe and russia doesn't like a dope but they're also going to be looking along with the other night and countries and areas of mutual cooperation because relations has been very frosty as of late. they got to go place to boost the partnerships in combating piracy in combating drug trafficking even working areas of mutual consent so that is going to be a fairly import meeting. but they're also going to be talking about afghanistan began with russia. many of the former sidekick countries like kyrgyzstan tajikistan uzbekistan are all not northern border. they still have very good relations with russia russia does not want to see the security situation to de stabilize the taliban again making inroads into those countries said this is one area one of the very few areas where russia us nato policy really come together there is very much a unified vision on what should be happening the sea and mixed it in afghanistan from russia the us at night or homemade think he'll get appreciated that so chris pine and dad bought ten reporting from brussels. well for their latest news from time and the world he can follow us at cctv news on twitter facebook and on so we bought in watching cctv news this now take a short break stayed with us. sells. says the uhaul it's now sixty minutes. our walk back to the cctv news british prime minister david cameron has spoken to students at the shanghai jiao tong university on the second day athletes visit to china kevin spoke with more than four hundred students at the university and one he claimed of topics including education exchange programs and the uk its visa policy later he is expected to hold meetings with the late on experience in shanghai to promote bilateral trade ties on monday county showed his support for the famous british brand gather land rover satisfactory. he later spoke at the uk chinese business and it's made clear his desire for a tiny eu deal catherine safin said he was the first european leader to champion said the deal had discussed the issue with other eu member states the deal would address the services little eye patients and better intellectual property rights protection. we allow cctv america has spoken to bruce's stokes the director of global economic package used at pew research center. still it has some analysis on the likelihood of an eu china trade deal and an outlook on tiny uk economic relations probably appealing to a base in britain we know incarcerated pew that the british are overwhelmingly supported free trade. eighty seven percent i bought the highest in the world. um there's a lot of manufacturing left in britain so the fear of chinese imports his will were even taken some other european countries there is a sense that. chinese economic opportunity. only the dock it showed that in europe everybody else in europe and china as an economic challenge for the danger. um so that he's a hitter but his domestic base but as you suggest. right now as a member of the european union is to me they continue to be a member of european union um any trade deal with china is done and you stop by the time for a while. and the burdens of compatriot in the european union are much more skeptical of of china the cameras throwing his full political weight behind this going over there saying i will fight as far as i can to make this happen. he is a lot to gain is talking about instantly three billion dollars more us coming into to great britain which they need. part of this proposed deal talks about actually even having the ability to work on nuclear plants and having china work with great britain on building a high speed rail from london to the north to north of england so very very positive step to albury positive and and and very reflective what china is trying to do going forward um the chinese have of the money to invest in pursuit of a high speed rail most countries don't and so on. it's part and parcel of a broader initiative by the chinese to ramp up in investment overseas especially in europe in united states um it to adhere them to the in those countries without a doubt of show that not one political consequences of this for a future government that should be to be taught about up because we know when the japanese invested a lot of united states back in the nineteen eighties. twenty years later the politics church japan to change dramatically i think that's that's one thing is great britain ahead of the car right. why do think that britain has been a bit of a unique position in the sense that they've always been great supporters of free trade and investment going back to the seventeen hundreds on a diet they may be acknowledging that look tiny in the future of radar data showed that the truck that the british already think that china's number one economy in the world even know. actually it's not that they believe that on and they believe that the event and china will surpass the ten stages the global superpower to give me your best guess for how people are going to cover this two weeks from now until march trade group more than a hundred individuals going with cameron. when people go in the same two weeks. my guess is they will vote on other issues you get a flurry of activity of these

in twenty fifteen all the veterans service that crushed a deal this weekend but what works well on planes doesn't necessarily work so well on planes some pics but it's a warning that isn't a total reliance on technology and addiction to the summation which sometimes can have catastrophic results and from school for seven crashed in the atlantic ocean in june two thousand owing to the old two hundred and twenty eight passengers and crew investigation question on the training and an inability to react when he also pointed to see cages to emergency summit but it's a pot odds to become too

>> we got down early but the guys fought back hard and defense played outstanding and got us stops and big turnover at the en. we had a couple of big plays and good drives and got back in the game. it was fun. we had a fun night. it was a good win for us. >> michele: andre brown missed the first eight games with a broken leg and comes back. two touchdowns tonight. has what has he meant to your offense? >> the physical running game he has brought and positive yardage and keeping us in good down and sdans and picking up protection. he has done a great job. peyton hillis played well tonight also. we run the ball wen' have to keep doing that. >> michele: you're 5-. what do you think? you're still in this. >> we knew after last week's loss we have to win five in a row aand this is the first one. you can't win five in a row if you don't win the first one so we accomplished that and got to keep going. >> michele: congratulations. >> thanks. >> michele: justin, had you two and a half sacks on the season. tonight have you a career high four. what got into you? >> you know what, man? coach always said just keep pounding the rock and what we have done. the numbers aren't there, but we rushed hard and tonight it came together for us. secondary did a great job of giving rg different reads and had to hold the ball longer than in previous games. i was able to capitalize on it. >> michele: the lack of pass rush is an issue for this defense. how do you build on a performance like tonight? like eli just said, mant we got to continue to play one game at a time. we dug youourselves in a good h here. you follow the giants we will always make it tough on ourselves. one game at a time and play together and great team effort and you got to win. >> michele: congratulations, justin. >> thank you, michele. >> al: michele, thanks. look at the playoff picture. new york is still very much on the outside on this situation even with that win although they do have technically a shot at it. seattle hosts new orleans tomorrow night and could affect the standings down the line. both divisions figure to come down to the final sunday. carolina and san francisco won today to stay ahead in the wild card race and two of carolina's next three games are against new orleans so they have a good shot at the division that includes next sunday night here on nbc when the panthers play at the saints. now let's bring in tony dungy from new york. tony, which nfc team impressed you most today? a lot to choose from. >> there are, bob. i have to look at the san francisco 49ers. they were playing st. louis. st. louis had been hot and the 49er defense played well as they always do. i think the big thing was getting michael crabtree back. you look at how that opened up the offense. crabtree making plays on the outside. not only the speed and everything that he brings but now just making it a little bit easier for vernon davis and anquan boldin. i was really impressed with the 49ers today. >> in the afc, if denver and new england each win out, they will own the top two seeds. indy is three games clear in the south and cincinnati two-game lead over baltimore. the race for the sixth seed figures to be tight with two teams at 6-6 and four at 5-7. so tony, although this may be an impossible question to answer, which team do you think is best positioned out of those half dozen fighting for that last playoff spot? >> i really like where the ravens are because they won on thanksgiving and when you have those extra three or four days off heading into december it really gives you a physical and emotional lift. also i like the fact that baltimore has been there before. they had a super bowl run last year. a lot of those veteran guys know what it takes so they have got a tough schedule coming up but i like where the ravens are sitting right now with that big win against pittsburgh. >> coach, thanks a lot. we will turn to mike florio of pro football talk. mike, what will you have your eye on tomorrow? >> bob, we will have our eye on the league office. tomorrow morning the review will commence of that sideline incident from thanksgiving night involving steelers coach mike tomlin. he has said he lost his placement on that white stripe. actually had a foot in the fie on a kickoff return by ravens receiver jacoby jones. i'm told all options are on the table from fine to suspension to on the possible loss of a draft pick although the expectation is there will simply be a significant fine imposed. either way a decision is expected by the middle of the week. speaking of decision. the packers and bears have decisions to make about their starting quarterback. aaron rodgers still recovering from a broken collar bone may or may not be back on sunday and mixed reviews on whether he is ready to return and face the falcons. for the bears jay cutler continues to recover from a high ankle sprain and may not be back on monday night as the bears take on the cowboys. both teams are in danger of sliding out of the playoff place altogether in the nfc. >> for all that and more don't miss mike on pro football talk on nbcsn. al and cris back to wrap things up after this. . mmm, that's hot. okay...that was weird. here's yours- i'm gonna take mine and leave you two alone. wendy's bacon portabella melt. a new buttery brioche bun, crisp bacon and rich portabellas in a melty cheddar sauce. now that's better. use chase freedom at select department stores and get 5% cash back this quarter. so you can give her an even bigger surprise. activate your 5% cash back at chase.com/freedom chase. so you can. the price you see is the price you pay?

around. mike shanahan in his press conference just said he had asked the head linesman the official nearest him for a measurement. the head linesman said he didn't need a measurement. they call a first down play and the way the game ended. >> cris: the bottom line jeff triple triplette saw the mistake. even though it impacts the game and no time-outs for washington and they couldn't stop it if he wanted to. he had to stop the game and make sure everybody understands it's third down not first down because the play caller has no chance in that situation. that is a major scw-up that really had a lot to do with the outcome of this game. >> al: one other note too. we didn't get it during the game. giants one penalty tonight for one yard. it was half the distance to the goal line so they had like 11 inches in penalties tonight. in any event! next week it's carolina at new orleans. a game that before the season we didn't think we would be flexing into but here we are and this is going a beauty. >> cris: it is. because you get sort of the best against the best. you get carolina's defense led by luke kuechly and they do so many great things on the defensive side. going into that dome where we have seen everybody struggle to try to stop that offense with drew brees so it's going to be fantastic. >> al: eight in a row. 15 games in about four days but a lot of fun this thanksgiving week. hope had a great holiday. 24-17 is our final. next week, it's on to the superdome. the panthers and the saints on "sunday night football." until then, al michaels and cris collinsworth and

wreckage in the metro-north commuter train which could provide key data from the accident. >> our mission is not to understand not just what happened but why it happened. >> passengers say they sensed there was a problem as the train rambled into a sharp turn along the harlem and hudson rivers. about 20 minutes from its final stop at grand central station. >> we were going fast. as it hit the

days. jay gray, nbc news, new york. >>> amtrak is not expecting the derailment to cause delays tomorrow. passengers in upstate new york were delayed several hours today between new york city and albany. that service has since been restored. northeast corridor service between washington and new york was never effected. >>> a controversial ending but another disappointing result for the redskins tonight at fedex field. the team now officially eliminated from the playoff picture. diana is live to tell us how it all came unraveled after a hot start for rg3 and the offense. >> you know, chris, you look at this game on paper. if you take a look at the stats and it seems the washington redskins team could have been vicker to yus but they couldn't finish, they couldn't get it done. and they pretty much let the new york giants take it right out of their hands. they came out hot in that first half but then it all fell apart in the second half. rg3 and the redskins starting this game great. then the second quarter, they're up 7-0. griffin to paul. 19-yard touchdown. griffin 12 of 12 passing to start the game. redskins up, 14-0. to the fourth quarter now. 17-14. on first and goal the giants andre brown reaches out and scores the go ahead touchdown. giants up 21-17. now we have 1:30 to go. skins down seven. after a referee screw-up, it's fourth and one. he makes the catch but the ball is stripped and taken away by will hills. giants hold on to win it, 24-17. the redskins now 3-7. they are tied in the nfl for the second worst record in the league. they are 3 of 9 right now.

a rapist. he reached out to news4 hope that his offer would bring in more tips for police. news4's david found out the man behind the reward offer knows what it's like to be the victim of an unsolved crime. >> b.b. smith wants to give away $1,000. he hopes someone, maybe you, will give him a reason to write the check. >> if he gets away with that, all that tells others is that they can do the same exact thing and get away with it. >> this is what he's referring to. last tuesday's robbery and rape of a woman in friendship heights. surveillance video captures the suspect and his victim. >> that could be anyone's mom, sister, grandmother, child, you know, it's got to stop. i mean, that's insane. >> last week's brutal crime happened right here on wisconsin avenue. now two reasons he wants the suspect caught. first, well, this is an area that he and his wife once considered safe. and, second, he's tired of crimes going unsolved. his own included. >> i was shot ten blocks from the capitol of

into a salvation army office in southeast early this morning. they broke glass to get through one door. and they used to screw driver to break into another. from the looks of it they knew exactly where the money was. >> it tugs at your heart when people decide they want to do this for their own community. i'm more concerned about what they're doing to the neighbors than what they're doing to the salvation army. >> salvation army says a security guard confronted one suspect. that suspect had a knife and got away. no one was injured. >>> people may have showed up for this big shopping weekend, but the latest report from the national retail federation finds they didn't spend as much money as expected. holiday shoppers spent $57 billion over the last four days. that is down 3% compared to last year. more than 141 million people hit the malls this weekend. many showed up early for thanksgiving day deals, but they still spent less. the average shopper spent $407 this weekend.

feel outside for thursday and friday. relatively speaking at least from where we've been. for the most part a dry start to december but by the time friday comes around and saturday, we're going to be

likelihood we will be dealing with rain at some point on friday. we'll continue to update the timing as we work our way through the week. temperatures now for the most part in the 30s. upper 30s a i cross the area with cloudy skies. 40 in annapolis. 43 degrees in washington. right now satellite and radar is showing that cloud cover over the area. and unfortunately, this cloud cover is going to stick with us throughout the day tomorrow. but that's going to do for the lows tonight is a good thing. it's going to prevent them from getting too cold. so low temperatures tonight in washington and areas by the water, will be in the mid 30s. the suburbs dropping into the low 30s. but remember, it is going to be a mostly cloudy monday just limited sunshine tomorrow. but it will be a little bit warmer than it was today. a high temperature tomorrow around 50 degrees. around the midday hours will be in the mid 40s and mid 40s for your evening hours as well. so it won't feel too cold outside. as we look to tuesday, a high temperature of 52 degrees with a cloud/sun mix. here's your planner for tuesday. starting off, not too bad. 38 degrees at 7:00 a.m. partly sunny skies for the midday and afternoon hours, feeling comrt outside. seasonable, this is the kind of weather we should be having this time of year. here you can see your average high, 50 degrees. wednesday, this is when the warm-up starts to kick in. a high temperature of 55 degrees on wednesday. partly sunny skies. mild for thursday. a high of 62 degrees. keeping it dry but mainly cloudy on thursday. friday, some rain is like likely. high temperature on friday. a 59 degrees. we're going to continue to track the temperature on friday because it might get a little bit colder. for saturday, a big temperature drop. we go from around 60 on friday to upper 40s on saturday. the chance of rain continues for sunday. partly to mostly cloudy. a chilly high temperature of only 41 degrees, chris. >> thank you very much. >>>

[ laughter ] here's what i'll say, both hilary and joe would make outstanding presidents and possess the qualities that are needed to be outstanding presidents. i think joe biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever. hilary i think will go down in history as one of the finest secretary of states we've had and helped transition us away from a deep hole we were in when i first came into office around the world. >> that's the only answer he could have given to that question? >> he gave it well. even pushed he said i'm not touching that one. he cannot weigh in on this one and i suspect he will get right up to the next election and where there ever to be an contest that's unimaginable between joe biden and hillary clinton in the nominating process i can't imagine barack obama weighing in on that one. in the larger context joe biden is doing hillary clinton a favor by havin
